PRP FACIAL WEST VANCOUVER BC
An Effective Anti-Aging Therapy At Equinox Integrative Wellness Center
PRP facial treatment by Equinox Integrative Wellness Center is highly a sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. The therapy uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume. The simple process coupled with PRP’s vast scope of healing makes it one of the most significant advances in modern medicine.
Factors Involved In Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Treatment
The blood is essentially made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, the plasma and the platelets.
We take your blood at the very first stage of the treatment and spin it in a centrifuge, which enables the separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets.
Then it is re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells.
PRP controls the beneficial functions of the patient’s own platelets and therefore there is no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment.
Process For Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)Treatment
Phase 1. Collect Blood- It’s the primary stage of PRP therapy, in which 30-60ml blood is drawn from the patient’s arm for the further treatment.
Phase 2. Separate The Platelets- The blood collected in the initial step of therapy is then positioned in a centrifuge which revolves and separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
Phase 3. Extract Platelet-Rich Plasma- After separating the platelets, there are platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. 3-6ml platelet-rich plasma is extracted for the further processing.
Phase 4. PRP Injection For The Injured Areas- During the last phase of the treatment at Equinox Integrative Wellness Center, we increase the growth factors up to eight times which promotes temporary relief and stops inflammation by using the concentrated platelets.
